Grilled Zahtar Bread with Tomatoes
- Active Time 5m
- Total Time 5m
Zahtar is a Middle Eastern spice mixture that includes summer savory, thyme, sesame seeds and a pinch of ground sumac.
- 4 large slices coarse peasant bread
- Extra-virgin olive oil
- 4 teaspoons zahtar (see Note)
- Salt and ground black pepper
- Crushed red pepper
- Diced beefsteak tomatoes
Light a grill.
Generously brush the bread with olive oil and sprinkle each slice with 1 teaspoon of the zahtar.
Season with salt, black pepper and crushed red pepper.
Grill the bread over a medium-hot fire, turning once, until nicely browned and crisp, 1 to 2 minutes per side.
Top with diced tomatoes and serve.
These savory toasts need nothing more complicated than a glass of crisp white wine. Select a Washington State Chardonnay, such as the 1997 Hogue.
Zahtar is available at Middle Eastern markets and specialty food shops.
